Read the passage carefully and choose the best answer to each question out of the four alternatives.
The energy which you call desire is not different from the energy that you call life. It is your desire that brought you here today, isn’t it? It is not your bus or car or something else. What is it which will make you eat? It is your desire which will make you eat. So what you call desire is not different from what you call life. Life is desire. Desire is the very essence of your life. If you look at the desire, there is something within you which is always longing to be a little more than what you are right now. That is desire. So your desires’ ultimate goal is unboundedness, the infinite nature. You are living in a remote place and your neighbor has one big buffalo. What is your desire? You want to have two buffaloes like that. So your desire is just a reaction to the social situations in which you are living. This is so because this longing to expand is finding unconscious expression. If you make your process of desiring into a conscious process, then desire is no more a problem. Desire is a wonderful vehicle which will take you places. Even if you want to reach the ultimate, you need a desire. Anyway, the desire in you is longing for unboundedness; it is longing for unlimitedness ; it is longing for ultimate nature. You just have to bring awareness to your desiring process, it is a wonderful instrument. If it is finding unconscious expression, then it makes you run like a mad man all the time. It keeps you running endlessly. (269 words)
